 Gallery 545 is delighted to present its annual group exhibition featuring and celebrating several accomplished artists based in Northern Ireland. This exhibition showcases a curated selection of diverse original artworks, on display both at the gallery and online.

All the exhibiting artists are represented by Gallery 545. They are emerging or more established artists who have encountered recognition here and beyond. The variety in the selection reflects the diversity and originality of their practice, as they have created works drawing upon different themes and ideas, using different styles and employing various techniques and materials.

Artworks include stunning paintings, exquisite works on paper, unique sculptures and beautiful mixed media pieces. They can represent atmospheric landscapes inspired by scenery encountered here and around the world, intriguing scenes suggesting stories and histories, or fascinating figures and portraits. They can also be abstract compositions, with delicate or vibrant colours, bold gestural marks or controlled geometric shapes.

Visitors will have the opportunity to appreciate and discover the wealth of artistic talent in the region. Those interested in buying art could find a perfect piece at an affordable price for their collection.
